Need For Speed Payback to Debut 2018 BMW M5

Need For Speed Payback to Debut 2018 BMW M5

BMW teamed up with EA to debut the 2018 M5 at the 2017 Gamescom, with the new Bavarian super-sedan to be exclusively featured on the upcoming Need for Speed Payback. Whenever we see a auto with almost identical front and rear tire width and all-wheel-drive we usually start thinking about terminal understeer, but we're also pretty sure that BMW M engineers know what they're doing. The 4WD mode is designed for maximum traction, while 4WD Sport sends more power rearward, allowing for more slip, and the 2WD mode makes the M5 act as if it were rear-drive - though BMW claims 2WD mode was created "experienced and highly skilled driver in mind". The 2018 M5 reaches 0-60 miles per hour in only 3.2 seconds, making it the quickest M5 yet. An available Variable Damper Control system adds electronically controlled shocks with three modes, and an available speed-sensitive M Servotronic Steering system gives drivers more options to adjust steering effort. "So you can think of the BMW M5 as the world's fastest-moving tailored suit". Drivers can also alter the characteristics of the vehicle using the same "Efficient", "Sport" and "Sport Plus" driving modes which come on the regular 5 Series.

BMW's beefy high performance sedan is back with a vengeance. That's more power than both the E63 and RS7, and this M5 is quicker in a 0-62mph sprint too: the new M5 takes 3.4sec compared with 3.5sec and 3.9sec for the Mercedes and Audi respectively.

Those familiar with the regular 5 Series will feel right at home in the new M5 - there's the same digital instrument display, as well as the latest version of BMW's iDrive infotainment and navigation system, which can be controlled by touch, gestures or using a rotary dial.

Inside, the M5 boasts heated sports seats and bright red buttons on the wheel for "M" driving mode presets.

"If we go on a direction of four-wheel drive, for us it will really be like a rear-wheel drive with more traction", he said.

Carbon ceramic brakes are optional, and they save 50 lbs of unsprung weight over the standard units. The new M5 will feature standard-fit 19in wheels shod with 275/40 front and 285/40 rear tyres or optional 20in rims with 275/35 front and 285/35 rear rubber.

As usual, the M5 exterior looks very similar to that of the 5 Series, but a closer look reveals larger grilles, a rear valance with a faux diffuser as well as the normal vents in the fenders, as well as the subtle M5 badge on the side.

BMW's 2018 M5 is a snarling 600-horspower beast due to a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8.

M compound brakes come standard and clamp down on perforated, vented 15.5-inch steel rotors in the front and 15-inch discs in the rear. Other than the enhanced trimmings and features, the cabin of the sixth-generation M5 is largely carried over from other 5 Series variants.

The automaker announced that the 2018 BMW M5 will arrive in the US next year-sometime after February, but before June-to patient hands willing to likely pay more than six figures for the privilege.
